Congrats! in Hollywood Regency

Hollywood Regency is the primary inspiration for my card. I have a friend, Sylvia, who goes over the top with glam décor in blue so this card is to recognize her recent community volunteer achievement. I also followed the color grid presented by Color My Heart Color Dare #347, which is to use the color blue. I added neutrals in white and silver. Challenge #347 starts today, Friday, June 14, and ends on Thursday, June 27.

The cardstock and papers were cut into strips of varying sizes. The silver pieces were embossed using a die. The strips were adhered onto a white card base. The doily was cut with a two-die set - one in white glimmer and one in bright blue foil. The doily was adhered using foam tape for dimension. The sentiment is also cut from a die. The inside was decorated using the same papers as seen on the card front.

Join the color challenge and play along with everyone at Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #347.

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White; WRMK Foil (blue, slate)
Paper: Recollections "Holographic Dreams"
Dies: Frantic Stamper Doily & Word; Poppy "Delicate Stitches" (x-stitch)
Misc.: Foam tape


  1. Nicely done, Melanie. Love the bright blue and it should be a big hit with your friend.

  2. Love the royal blue colour that you selected - perfect for a card of recognition as it is such a regal colour. The big doily is awesome - definitely the focal point. Great choice of papers for your card - I’m sure your friend will love it.

  3. So pretty Melanie! I love the colors and the foil touches are fantastic! :)

  4. Wow, this is really pretty and the rich blues against the softer blues are striking. Beautiful card.

  5. That blue really catches your eye! What an elegant card.
